The Palestinian Authority has filed a report on the killing of Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh to the International Criminal Court, according to Israeli media reports.
Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyadh al-Maliki announced that the PA officially contacted the ICC to start an investigation against Israel, The Jerusalem Post reported.
“What happened in the killing of Abu Akleh is a crime,” Maliki declared.
There are conflicting reports over who was responsible for the 51-year-old journalist who was killed while covering a military raid in the West Bank city of Jenin earlier this month.
There has been widespread condemnation over the killing.
